What is a COMPRESSED file?
WordCompress was a WordPress plug-in that deleted all comments and white space within a webpage's source code and wrote the code to a single executable line. This allowed web browsers to load the page more quickly. Each webpage's compressed code was saved within a COMPRESSED file.
WordPress and WordCompress store COMPRESSED files alongside webpages' original source code. That way, any comments, indentations, and other white space included in the page's original source code are not destroyed when it is converted to a COMPRESSED file.
How to open a COMPRESSED file
Because COMPRESSED files are plain text files, you can open them and view their contents in any text editor. You can also open a COMPRESSED file as part of a website design project in Adobe Dreamweaver (Windows, Mac).
